In this work we make a detailed look at the algebraic structure of convolutional codes using techniques of linear systems theory. The connection between these concepts help to better understand the properties of convo- lutional codes, in particular the concepts of controllability and observability of linear systems can be translated into the context of convolutional codes relating these properties with the noncatastrophicity of the codes. We examine the output-observability property and we give conditions for this property.
